Now The Gurkhas

Here is a link to yesterday's story of how badly one of our servicemen, who married a Canadian while posted in Germany, is being treated by this government while he is away fighting their war.

Today the Gurkhas are demonstrating against their appalling treatment at the hands of this, and previous governments. They have been a proud part of the British Army for over 200 years but are refused, in many cases, the right to settle here and many have to return to Nepal after service on pitiful pensions. 50 Gurkhas are reportedly handing back their medals to the government today in protest.

Support the Gurkhas by following this link!
